Do you want something louder or more quiet?

Nobody shoot, but I think the pink and green/blue reads really loud to me. But, you may want louder.

I like the diamond halo, to let your stone be the star. I think the two color tones make for a competition.

I really like the double halo with the baguettes inside myself.

Oooh the first & second diamond halo. The pariba glows, the diamonds sparkle and it looks soo elegant!

Agree about the loudness

That’s definitely a favorite of mine as well. This is a very tough decision!

Was the Paraiba face down in your first two photos? If so, may we see some better photos, so we can judge how well it would stand up to those gorgeous Mahenge Spinels.

Yes, all are face down. Caysie has them but I’ll see if she can get one of them together face up.
Here’s the only one I have that shows the glow.

Out of your initial ideas, I liked the 3 stone. After you posted the second set of pics, I love the one with the onyx in it. The black really makes the
blue pop!

That one is gorgeous and of course the most expensive!

Your Paraiba is amazing! I would not let anything compete with it so I would only do a white halo if I was going to halo it. I could see it in a gorgeous vintagey setting. I like the 3 stone idea but don't like it with the spinels because I think it takes away from the gorgeous paraiba, but again that's just me. I have an oval 3 stone that is a bright pink sapphire with oval diamond side stones, all three haloed with very small white diamonds. The pink just pops. I could see your stone in something like that as well. Good luck on finding your perfect setting!

Thank you @Catmom for your opinion. I’m basically at a standstill on a decision. I don’t want any regrets about the outcome so I’m still looking for the right inspiration.
